This one-bedroom apartment in Clinton Hill is in a four-story circa 1900 walk-up with 14 apartments. It isn’t huge but it benefits from some nice original details, not-crazy rent and its perch on a high floor, providing unobstructed views and light from south-facing windows.
Located at 51 Irving Place, apartment 7R has a long hallway extending from the entrance. The bedroom to the right has a double-door closet and a window looking into a light well. Next comes the bathroom, which isn’t pictured, but we see a small window in the floor plan. Further down the hall, the living room has a mantel with classical columns holding up a shelf. It’s set between two windows. The room also has a large closet with double sliding doors.
Finally, the mostly unfitted kitchen is no great wonder of design, but it’s workable with tile floors, wood cabinets with varnished plywood fronts and a laminate particle board counter. There’s room for a table. The kitchen faces the rear of the building, with glimpses of Saint Augustine’s Episcopal Church visible on the other side of the block.
51 Irving Place is a pretty typical looking turn-of-the-last-century brick apartment building. It has a limestone door surround and a band above the first story, with lintels featuring keystones with scrolls and foliate patterns. It was not on historical maps in 1898, but appears there by 1904.
The listing, from Andrea Weksler of Douglas Elliman, notes the unit is available starting September 1, and there’s an open house Friday, August 9 from 6:10 to 6:40 p.m. The asking rent is $2,150, which is likely held down to reasonable increases by being in a building of more than five units that are likely rent stabilized. For a one-bedroom in 2019, is it a good deal?
